Consider joining the new SIGHPC Education chapter

Are you involved in teaching HPC, developing educational or training materials, or curriculum development?  Our first chapter is now recruiting members.  Learn more

You can still see SIGHPC's successful webinars

Our next webinar will be March 31, 2015.  Salman Habib (Argonne Nat’l Lab and Univ of Chicago) will discuss “Extreme Scaling and Performance across Diverse Architectures.”  Don't miss this chance to learn more about designing applications that can run efficiently across a variety of systems.  There is no charge, but you should register in advance.  And don't forget that you can see our past webinars at any time, since they're archived.  See Webinars for more info.

Did you miss your October newsletter?

We're getting reports from occasional people that they're not getting our emails.  You should have gotten a recent newsletter.  If you think you're missing this or any of our messaages, please send an email to right away so we can try to fix the problem.
